Republicans Force Democrats To Go On Record Over Immigration Agency

People hold up signs July 16 in Washington, D.C., as they protest the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and the recent detentions of illegal immigrants. Getting rid of the agency has become a popular rallying cry among progressives, but the House on Wednesday overwhelmingly passed a symbolic measure voicing support for ICE.

Democrats denounced the nonbinding House Republican resolution backing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency as a “stunt” and many voted “present” to avoid taking a position.
